The effect of triazolam on prior-sleep-mediated performance deficits (sleep inertia) was assessed. On Day 1, subjects (45 healthy males, aged 18–39, tested in groups of two to four) reported to the laboratory at 0800 h, at which time electrodes were attached for continuous ambulatory recordings of EEG, EMG, EOG, and EKG. Addition tests of 3 min duration were administered at 1400, 1405, 1410, 1415, 1420, and 1425 h. After each test a Stanford Sleepiness Scale (SSS) was given to assess self-rated… CONTINUE READING
